Becoming a member of HSS is easy, but it does require commitment.  Unlike a commercial operation, the club operates by volunteer help.  This means that cost stays extremely low for everyone.  It also means that everyone has to work to make it happen.  Below is an overview of the costs and benefits of being an HSS member.
